Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of January 27, 2019

The crystals I am working with for the week are Chrysoprase, Unakite and Snakeskin Jasper. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Chrysoprase – Connected to nature. Profoundly mood-lifting, cheering, supportive, and healing for the spirit. Helps in times of depression, sadness or coping with the darker, more challenging periods of life. It can help us to let go of anger, and focus on the positive, rather than being overwhelmed by the negative, and remind us of what we have to be grateful for – definitely a “glass half full” sort of crystal. For acceptance and self-acceptance.

Unakite – Helps you to visualize the things you desire in your life. Helps balance your emotions, bringing you more into alignment spiritually. It will assist you to sleep better, and will also help to relieve stress. It will help any addictive habits that you have had difficulty dealing with, as it helps you to break through the barriers that are keeping you down. It brings serenity and optimism about the future. This is a good stone to use during the difficult situations the world is undergoing right now. If you have been feeling depressed or feeling that you don’t know what the future holds for you, this stone is here to help you. A stone of love, especially self-love.

Snakeskin Jasper – A protective and calming stone. Guards against negativity, shields from psychic attacks, and also protects from temptations which would be harmful or damaging. Helps with dream recall and offers insight into difficult situations. An anti-anxiety stone, it assists in times of worry or conflict.

Things have been so hard. I know I keep saying relief is on the way and we will turn a corner… and I truly believe we will, that there will be a time when we feel much better than we have lately… but we also have to remember that life is always going to challenge us. There are always going to be bumps we have to contend with. Really, the quicker you drop your expectations of life always being perfect, the better your experience will be. It reminds me of a book I’m reading in my college class right now, and she talks about her day using a balloon analogy. As things go wrong in her day, she blows into the balloon. Eventually it blows. She repeats the day again, only this time, taking breaks in between the events and releases some of the stress with healthy coping strategies, as represented by letting out some air from the balloon instead of it blowing. We have to maintain a healthy balance. Even if it’s 5 mins you take for yourself, let out some air. We have been going through dark times, many people have been struggling. Nature is going to be very healing this week. You will notice moments of nature healing you. Spend time outside when you need a minute to breathe. I especially like to look at the stars at night. Doing these things will help you feel better, and remind you of all the things to be thankful for. I stand outside every night and let my thoughts about the Universe blow my mind. Feeling so small and inquisitive reminds me of how lucky I am to be alive and living this existence. How graced I am to witness such beauty. We are bombarded with so much negativity in our day to day lives… make sure to balance that with time to release it all. There is also a lot here about loving ourselves. This is a major journey we are awakening to. The more you love yourself, the easier it is to be cheerful and feel happy and positive. The positive mindset is important because we are attracting the things we believe, the things we think about. If we can keep ourselves more balanced and centred, we can keep ourselves from spiralling. YOU NEED STRESS RELIEF. You need to do what works for you to be able to let the shit go. When you are less stressed, you will sleep better and everything will function more efficiently. Don’t let worries control your life. Take back control. You can be strong and break any habits that are holding you back. Getting some spiritual treatments and getting aligned always helps. Spirit wants us to feel good about ourselves, and to feel good about the future. How can we love Mother Earth, if we do not love ourselves? There is so much negativity in the world, and we cannot and must not give in. We must believe in goodness and positivity. To be truthful, if you feel positive, it doesn’t even matter what the future holds, because it’s always perfect. Life is an amazing series of beautiful miracles. Protect yourself from negativity this week. Don’t absorb it from others, and recognize it in yourself and let it go. Be patient with yourself and others. Love yourself, like you would another. There is also a lot going on in dreams. I have been dreaming so intensely this week! This morning, the rest of my family was saying the same, so be prepared and try to write them down if you can. Let’s see what the cards have to say!

What perfect cards!! (I say that every week, ha ha) Spirit wants us to shake off the stress. To dance and have fun and celebrate our life. There is so much to be thankful for. Moving is the best way to release energy, so get out for a walk in nature, dance, work out, whatever helps you to let go of stress. Not only should we do this to let go of stress, but also to express ourselves and our individuality. We are in this phase of transformation and spring is nearly here. We are rebirthing in ways that are so beautiful, that are beyond what we could ever expect or imagine. Being more fully present with life is going to make everything feel happier and more fulfilling. This is a time to feel renewed as Spring arrives. It always feels like the darkness will last forever, like winter will never leave… but the light always returns and spring always comes. It always does. Shed what you no longer need to carry as you head into spring. Let your Spirit be refreshed! Flow with these cycles of life, and have faith. Enjoy your life now, this very moment, this very day. Even if things are hard, take a break to enjoy. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of December 30, 2018

The crystals I am working with for the week are Lepidolite, Blue Quartz and Angelite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Lepidolite – A stone of calm, trust, and acceptance. It brings hope in dark times by lending a sense of balance and calm. Lepidolite is a stone of transformation in that it helps one get through transitions with trust that everything will ultimately turn out for the best. It engenders and enhances self-love, patience, and optimism. Psychically, lepidolite is used for dreamwork, rebirthing, and is also good for dream recall. It softens the impact of these experiences so they can be easily received. Lepidolite is also a protective stone that brings success in business or career. Emotionally, lepidolite is one of the best healers. It decreases stress, anxiety, depression, manic-depression, despondency, PTSD, anger, and other traumas, panic attacks, and addictions. It brings gentleness and balanced energy to all these and other emotional issues.

Blue Quartz – Clears away the toughest energy blockages. Relieves fear. Helps you to reach out to others. Calms the mind. Assists in understanding your Spiritual nature. Inspires hope. Enhances organization and self-discipline.

Angelite – Brings light and love into your life. One of the best stones for improving Spiritual awareness. A deeper sense of your Spiritual connection allows you to feel calmer and more energized, and relieves anxiety and depression. Helpful for healthy communication.

It’s been tough out there. I can feel it for so many people. We are in such confusing times of transformation… relationships falling away, people passing… The crystals are asking you to trust in the Universe, that everything will work out as it should. They offer you hope in these dark times. It is so important that you try to maintain your calm, and take care of yourself and love yourself. You can and will get through this, so you might as well make the best of it and try to do things for you. You have wonderful people that surround you, turn to them when you need someone to talk to. It is very important that you let go of fear and stay calm. Go to counselling if you need… do whatever it takes to love yourself and conquer fear when it arises. Remember you are loved and never alone. Turn to your faith and Spirituality. The more connection you have to your own Spirituality, the easier it will be to handle the challenges ahead. All you have to do is worry about yourself. The things other people do are not your fault or concern, just get yourself organized and be the best person you can be. Try to be patient and understanding, especially during the times you would rather lose your cool. You will feel better about yourself in the long run. You are never going to be without love in your life, and there is so much coming for you! Let’s see what the cards say!

I apologize, I am a little behind this week. I try to do my weekly reading on Sundays, but my son got sick and then passed it on to me! So I’ve been trying to take it easy the last couple days. Since it’s already January 1, it’s fitting the Awakening Card is speaking about new beginnings and new ways of being. I love the fresh energy of January 1. Not only do we have a choice of how we intend to utilize the year ahead, but we also have received many energetic upgrades over the last year and now are integrating those into our lives. This card is about being true to yourself and discovering more about yourself. You can do your part to make this year amazing, and especially this week, by having fun and raising your vibes. Do things you don’t normally do. Turn on some music and dance around the house. Allow yourself to feel happy! Joy is the best way to bring positive energy into life. All the things that have happened are for a reason. You might not be able to see the whole picture. The Universe is asking you to trust that it’s for good reason, and you will end up benefitting and growing from the challenges you have faced. Just try to keep your heart open. Try to see the blessings. The future is beautiful, there is so much magic and happiness. You are still a beautiful rose… perhaps even more so. 🌹

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of November 18, 2018

The crystals I am working with for the week are Rainforest Rhyolite, Moss Agate and Emerald. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Rainforest Rhyolite – Helps you to find your expression in the wake of problems and anxieties. Provides insight into solutions and alternatives. It helps to eliminate procrastination and distractions.

Moss Agate – Brings general abundance, success, and prosperity. Helps one gain peace with extreme or excessive duties in life. Increases self-confidence and self-esteem. Assists with overcoming addictive behaviours.

Emerald – Preserves love and acts as a symbol of hope. Provides sensitivity, loyalty and wisdom. Gives the ability to make the “right” choices. It brings harmony, action and progress. Brings freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. It will help you manifest a peaceful loving existence. Helps heal the body.

The energy has been tough lately, there has been a lot of friction, particularly in the aspect of relationships. I find it fitting that Venus just went direct after being in retrograde, and Emerald is the stone of the Goddess Venus. It’s also a stone I don’t think I’ve used in a reading yet, and it’s energy is so beautiful. With Venus going direct we should see our relationships settle, but now Mercury is retrograde, so get ready for everything else to start testing your patience. The good news? You have been through so much crap, I mean… life experience… that you are well prepared to deal with whatever happens. You have solutions available to you, and you can find alternatives. So don’t let anything stop you, keep moving and putting yourself out there, finding your expression. There is success and prosperity to gain from all you can give to the world. Yes, you have a lot on your plate… like a lot. Have peace knowing you can handle it! You always have, and you always will, in fact, your rocking it now handling everything. So believe in yourself and love yourself, know you can let those worries and fears go. You can overcome your bad habits. You are ready to make good choices in your life. It is safe to believe in yourself. You have so much abundance to gain from making positive choices! It’s time for a fresh start. You are ready to embody a truly loving existence, a life of harmony. Not only will you feel inspired, but everyone else will be too. You are strong enough now. You are worthy of love and good things. Please see that and love yourself so much that all you want to do is make good choices. You will be rewarded by the Universe for your truly good behaviour. The crystal energy feels very Earth like, and I was drawn to use my Earth deck, so let’s see what the cards have to add.

There is so much promise on the horizon. I just love this card. It’s a symbol of beautiful possibilities available to you now. Stop and appreciate all that you have taken for granted. Appreciate the beauty and simple splendours of life. Appreciate holding your loved ones. This is about making promises to yourself and setting your intention. You want to live a positive life? Then you can’t give in to negative behaviour. Keep those promises you make, and live with intention. Wouldn’t you believe it… the New Moon Card references the planet Venus, named after the Goddess of Love. This is the beginning of huge manifestation opportunities, you have to put your best self out there. This is a promise that even if things get tough… if things get dark.. the light will return. It is a sacred promise, upheld from the dawn of time. Put your ideas into action and believe in yourself! This is the 1st time I’ve gotten to read this Island Card, and it is so beautiful. The image is so visually striking. This card is a reflection of us. It is showing us how alone we have been, how dark it has been. It is a remind of what we have endured. Yet, we have still managed to grow and become beautiful. This is a card about loving yourself, seeing your beauty and enjoying being with yourself. Be comfortable with who you are. We no longer feel the need to be co-dependent in others, we know we are fine on our own. This is about making time for yourself… specifically organic, unplanned, restful time, and connecting to yourself. As long as you are solid on your own, nothing or no one can disrupt you. While it important to have alone time, it is also important to make time for others. The Dance Card is about spending time with those you love and celebrating life. Experiencing that connection, love and joy. It helps us to appreciate who we are, when we are surrounded by people who love and celebrate us. Let yourself be happy and enjoy your time on Earth, responsibly of course.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of August 27, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Chiastolite, Septarian Dragon Stone and Snakeskin Jasper. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you.

Chiastolite – Called the “Cross Stone” because its cross pattern of different colors that occurs naturally. It is a stone of balance and harmony. Helps with mental/emotional balance, stability, enhances problem solving. Helps with adapting to change. Helps memory, and the ability to see all sides of a problem. Can empower and enhance astral travel. Chiastolite can enhance spiritual awareness and harmony, as well as practical creativity. By practical creativity I mean being able to creatively think of new or different solutions to problems or issues.

Septarian Dragon Stone – A healing stone, beneficial for overall health and well-being. Gives relief for muscle spasms. Nurtures and grounds. Brings calming energies and can bring feelings of joy and spiritual uplifting. Septarian is used to assist to communicate with Mother Earth. Said we to bring unconscious foreknowledge needed by the user to help him or her always be prepared for what is coming up.

Snakeskin Jasper – A protective and calming stone. Guards against negativity, shields from psychic attacks, and also protects from temptations which would be harmful or damaging. Helps with dream recall and offers insight into difficult situations. An anti-anxiety stone, it assists in times of worry or conflict.

When I do readings for people or even just by being around them, I get in the flow of their energy. I can stay there for quite some time, weeks or months even, and I feel like it’s God’s way of guiding me to them for healing and guidance. I feel deeply connected to a few people who will appreciate this reading this week if they read it, but we are all going through these things on some level. The energy feels a little heavier this week.. it feels like we are going to experience some stress, worry or conflict. I know we do on a regular basis, but this week just feels a bit extra stressful. Things are going to piss you off, your going to feel crappy at times, and your going to want to give in to temptations… things that may not be the best choices for you. The stones are bringing you a sense of calm, so you can can be more aware and make better decisions. When that sense of temptation arises, remind yourself to stay calm, and know that you are prepared for this situation. Give the issue whatever resolution you feel appropriate and move on, without becoming emotionally attached or obsessing about the issue. You can only do what you can do. Try to do the best you can for your own life. You are being asked to see the issue from all sides, and handle it with practical creativity. This includes having some compassion and finding a softer spot within you to send love to the issue, but more importantly, maintaining an assertive stance of love for yourself. Only YOU can make the choices you need to, to find the joy you seek in this life. If you stay stuck on the negative stuff that makes you feel heavy, that is the frequency you will vibrate at and the Universe is going to send you more of the same types of energy. It’s ok to feel things, but try not to dwell on them or stay stuck there. There is always a positive aspect, and you need to stay focused on that. Look at the bright side. Keep pressing on. Spending time in nature or in meditation can really help to stay grounded, stay balanced and to appreciate the wonders of this life. Let’s see what the cards say for the week.

Release/Relax is the perfect card… handle the situation and release it. Don’t dwell on things. Let them go. This will help you to be able to relax. If you stay pent-up all the time, the anxiety takes over and consumes you. Take your power back. Love yourself enough to let go, and take what you need to be able to relax and enjoy life. You deserve it, and life is too short. Situations and people will be coming at you, and you need to shield yourself from those energies. The crystals and Angels are here to help protect you and shield you from negativity. Stay in your own bubble. Make your own little world pretty and love it there. The Grouse makes me feel like we need some self-expression to help us release some of the stuff we hold on to. Drumming or dancing is a great way to find that release, and let go. Also, I feel inclined to recommend a smudge. Ask one of your spiritual friends, or stop down at the local Metaphysical store. I’m sure someone would be happy to smudge you. Attending a ceremony would also be a great way to find this connection and release. Do whatever activity that makes you feel good, and helps you process and release. My cousin Rebecca Bauer sells handmade incense on her etsy page – https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/TheTaurusElement – it is delicious and fresh, and I love burning some to enhance and refresh the energy. Maybe get out of your comfort zone go take a yoga class. Do something to treat yourself and switch life up a bit. Whatever you do, express yourself and find joy in-between the crap. It will get better, just try to focus on the positive!

Release/Relax – You were born to be passionate, and nothing can change that. However, this card reminds you to focus on channelling your emotions and opinions in positive and constructive ways, for the sake of peace. The Angels ask you to find a creative and beneficial release for your emotions so you can move on freely. For example, you can channel anger into artistic projects, or volunteering for activist work. Ask the Angels to help you express yourself and helpful, beneficial ways. Make sure you’re always fair to yourself, but be fair to those around you as well.

Shielding – Although you may be strong at heart, your energy is among the most sensitive on the planet, which is why you feel so intensely in situations where others seem calm. For that reason, this card is asking you to energetically shield yourself from negativity. Know that the Angels are always around you, and they’re powerful auras are continually at your disposal for energetic shielding. Simply ask Heaven to surround you with Angelic light, and know that you’re spiritually and emotionally protected. Anytime you’re in a harsh situation, immediately request that the Angels shield you.

Grouse – Your first experience of life in a physical body was with rhythm and movement: The vibration of your mother’s heartbeat and her voice, the pulsing of her breathing, and the fluid movement of the placental sea that enveloped you. You would flow with the harmony – or disharmony – of her moods and movements. If you’ve ever tried drumming (or any percussion), dancing, or the two together, you know that they touch something very deep in ancient in us – Something tribal, a deep chord of being where spirit and body coincide. Rhythm and movement draw out sensual expression and merge with the sensuous world around you. By allowing yourself to surrender to the pulse of whatever rhythm is guiding you, you connect more completely to your body. When you engage in some form of rhythmic dance on a regular basis, you’ll feel more relaxed and in the flow of life. Doing so can also re-create and tap into the sensations you felt in the womb, revisiting that place of no thought, where the movement moves you effortlessly. So cut loose and enjoy yourself! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Associations: Movement; Drumming; Dancing; Sacred spiral; Completion; Fulfillment; Intuition; Enlightenment; Rhythm; Personal power; Flow; Vision; Creativity; Healing

Movie Review – Magic Mike XXL

 
This movie gets a bad reputation just due to the fact that it is based on male stripping. People automatically assume because it stars Channing Tatum and it’s about stripping, that it is garbage. I have never been to a stripper in my life, but I do appreciate dance, art and beauty. This movie truly does accompany all these things. It was funny, it was sexy, it was beautiful and it was entertaining. The cast of cool celebrity appearances goes on and on in this movie. Childish Gambino (Donald Glover or you may know him as Troy from the TV show Community) Twitch (from The TV show So You Think You Can Dance) as well as Jada Pinkett-Smith’s appearances were awesome. I love how the one stripper is spiritual now and doing reiki, and how they consider themselves as healers helping women have fun and feel beautiful. It’s always great to see spiritual awareness in movies, even if there is fun being poked at it. The story is not so much what is captivating about this film, but more the way the film makes you feel. It really envokes a sense of fun and passion. The eye candy doesn’t hurt at all either! If you love dance, sexy men, and just want to have some fun and feel good, give this movie a watch! Although it has lower ratings elsewhere on the web, I would rate this film a 7.4 out of 10. It was definitely worth the watch!
